Description

I Place You Into the Fire by Rebecca Thomas, Mi'kmaw spoken-word artist and author of I'm Finding My Talk shows that three similarly shaped Mi'kmaw words have drastically different meanings: kesalul means "I love you"; kesa'lul means "I hurt you"; and ke'sa'lul means "I put you into the fire." In this poetry collection, readers will feel Rebecca Thomas's deep love, pain, and frustration and loss. Diverse and probing, I Place You Into the Fire is at once a meditation on navigating life and love as a second-generation Residential School survivor, a lesson in unlearning, and a rallying cry for Indigenous justice, empathy, and equality. A searing collection that embodies the vitality and ferocity of spoken-word poetry.
